Alexis Collins

Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP

Alexis Collins’ practice focuses on complex civil and antitrust litigation, criminal and regulatory enforcement matters, and cybersecurity. Alexis first joined the firm in 2001. In 2003, she joined the U.S. Department of Justice, where she served in numerous positions for more than a decade. She returned to the firm as a senior attorney in 2015 and became a partner in 2019.

Most recently before rejoining the firm, she was a Deputy Chief of the Counterterrorism Section in the National Security Division. In that capacity, she led a team of prosecutors working on some of the Department’s most significant and high-profile international terrorism criminal cases. From 2012 to 2014, Alexis served as counsel to the Assistant Attorney General for National Security, a role in which she assisted in the supervision of all federal international terrorism investigations and prosecutions and development of the Department’s counterterrorism policy.

Between 2009 and 2011, Alexis was an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York. Prior to that time, she spent six years as a trial attorney in the Counterterrorism Section of the Department of Justice, where she investigated and prosecuted complex international terrorism cases nationwide.

During her tenure with the Department of Justice, Alexis conducted seven trials in various U.S. districts and handled several arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. She received two of the Department’s highest honors: the Attorney General’s Award for Excellence, in connection with her successful defense of the constitutionality of a highly sensitive intelligence collection program, and the FBI Director’s Award, in connection with her investigation and prosecution of a multinational terrorist cell.
